Girl shot dead

New Delhi: Two girls from Sitapur, Uttar Pradesh alleged eve teasing for several months before their harassers shot one of them dead.
The girls had been complaining about the harassment to police for a number of months, but no action had been taken against their assailants. While they resisted molestation, two bike-bourne assailants shot one of the girls and fled the scene.
The victim’s sister has sustained several injuries and is alleging police negligence. She spoke of how she and her sister had reported the assailants to the police several times, the cops doing nothing about the matter, leading eventually to her sister’s death.
